"I had been looking forward to this game from the moment I saw the Queen Of The World in Sydney Harbour with the Sydney Opera House in the background.
Yes, a rendered shot of course, but the sheer size of the Queen Of The World and the story really lit a fire in me more than most other games on offer at the time, and still. While I do like a good shooter, I’m also a great fan of the early Remedy Games Max Payne series.
They offered quite an interesting puzzle-set within the games that basically wasn’t one of the ‘follow-the-arrows’ style of games. Hydrophobia is very similar to those game styles. So you won’t find big arrows or a compass to guide you around by the nose to the next objective, and depending on what you do, the objective may need to be dealt with in a different fashion than first thought."
